VISAKHAPATNAM: In a bid to restore the lost sheen of Ramakrishna Beach in the aftermath of cyclone Hudhud and beach erosion, GVMC would soon launch beautification works. The civic officials would prepare a detailed project report within a month and submit it to the authorities concerned for approval.

During his city tour late Saturday night, GVMC commissioner Pravin Kumar asked the officials to take steps for maintaining the beauty of the beach by clearing the litter in regular intervals. He wanted the repair works to the footpath, parapet wall and also the beach road to be carried out at the earliest.

Following this, GVMC officials decided to improve lighting on the beach as well as NTR Statue Junction, Outer Harbour Road, YMCA and Swimming Pool areas.

Meanwhile, providing much relief to beach-lovers, the civic body would soon close all the drainage pipelines dumping waste water into the sea through the beach and divert the sewerage to the treatment plant at Appughar. The GVMC commissioner is contemplating laying a pipeline to divert waste water to the treatment plant and instructed officials to prepare a detailed report to resolve the issue on a permanent basis.

Earlier, Pravin Kumar inspected the night shelter at TSR Complex and inquired about the problems being faced by the inmates. He asked the night shelter organisers to fix mosquito nets to the windows and arrange proper lighting. It was also decided to repair the drinking water supply pipeline at ITI Junction in Kancharapalem.

He inspected the ongoing works of underground drainage and maintenance of Sulabh Complex at Syamnagar Colony in Kancharapalem area and BT road construction works on the Suryabagh-Saraswati Park stretch.
